Langley Federal Credit Union employees, friends and family members honored Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy on Jan. 20 by giving back to the community as 208 volunteers worked a combined 1,214 hours.
Langley partnered with Housing Partnerships, Inc. and York County to work on 12 homes at Leigh Road in York County. The work included three new roofs, multiple windows and doors, flooring, painting and yard work. One homeowner received a new hot water heater while another received a new air conditioning unit.
In Chesapeake, 22 volunteers completely revamped the reception area of Children’s Health Investment Program (CHIP). They restored sticky walls covered in wallpaper glue and updated the bathroom with new furniture and a changing room for the nonprofit that serves families and newborns, as well as hung new, colorful photos on the freshly painted walls.
Another 10 Langley employees volunteered at Virginia Peninsula Foodbank, Center for Sexual Assault Survivors and Animal Aid.
